Part four of four in our Toxicology Series.
This webinar series covers the most important aspects of veterinary toxicology with updated information on how to best manage the most common intoxications seen in first opinion practice. The possibilities for intoxication in our small animal patients are endless. This course will start with a stepwise approach as to what to do with the poisoned patient including where to find information quickly and when to worry (and not!), advise what advice can be safely given over the phone, as well as what must be prioritised during the first 30 minutes when first meeting the patient. There will then be a full discussion of the best ways to decontaminate the poisoned patient covering a wide range of scenarios including some more challenging cases. Although the number of antidotes available for poisoned patients is limited, they may be life-saving in a number of situations. and their use will be discussed using case examples. The course will finish with a discussion of the latest updates on the management of some common toxins seen in clinical patients. By the end of the webinar series you will be more confident in dealing with any toxicologic emergency and able to apply the latest recommendations to the management of these emergency cases.
